Risk

Although you are probably safer in the woods than you are in the city, you could be injured while traveling to or participating in a hike organized by the TrailBlazers Hiking Club. Our volunteer leaders are in no way responsible for your safety. You choose to hike and take the risk, so you are responsible for your own well being. Club leaders urge you to know your limits, take precaution and avoid risky behavior on the trail that could endanger you or others. If you do get hurt while on one of our outings, neither TrailBlazers Hiking Club nor our volunteer leaders accept responsibility. If you do not agree with this, please do us, and yourself, a favor by not participating. We don't want to sound harsh, but our rapid growth and large numbers require us to make this statement.
